Celtic booked their place in the quarter-final stage of the Scottish Cup on Saturday with a 3-2 win over Partick Thistle at Celtic Park.
Brendan Rodgers made changes from the side which lost to Kilmarnock, with Jozo Simunovic, Scott Sinclair and Mikael Lustig all coming into the side.
The Hoops took the lead after only two minutes, a Moussa Dembele shot was blocked into the path of James Forrest who fired home.
Dembele then missed a chance to make it 2-0, heading over from close range.
Forrest did make it 2-0 after only nine minutes, a fine solo goal marking his 15th goal of the season.
A mistake by Jozo Simunovic then let Thistle back into the game, Kris Doolan finishing in style to make it 2-1.
James Forrest then completed his first hat-trick for the Hoops with a nice finish in the 53rd minute.
The Hoops failed to kill the game off though, and Conor Sammon set-up a nervy end to the game with a fine goal.
The Bhoys managed to hold on and can now look ahead to Thursday’s Europa League last 32 match against Zenit.
Here, Football Insider looks at three things we learned in the Hoops’ win over Partick, including one faltering star who continued to flop.
